Video and text posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

 

 

 

Posted text: “Israel’s fake democracy”

Visual:

The video shows images of confrontations with Israeli security forces.

Text on screen: “The lie and the hypocrisy

The democracy

How is the occupation implementing democracy towards the Palestinians, the owners of the land?

The Israeli occupation is murdering our children’s childhood

It is our right to live against the fascism”

 

 

A cartoon is shown of an overweight ultra-Orthodox Jew standing on a barrel with “US” written on it in English and plastering the Israeli flag over the Palestinian flag. Sections of the Israeli flag are in a container next to him, on which is written: “A decision of Israel; a Jewish nation-state,” apparently referring to the Jewish Nation-State Law – see note below.

Jewish Nation-State Law – law passed by the Israeli Parliament on July 19, 2018, which codifies in Israel's Basic Law that Israel is the home of the Jewish nation with Jerusalem its capital, and the Hebrew calendar its official calendar. It establishes Hebrew as the sole official language and grants Arabic a special status, and it recognizes Jewish and Israeli holidays, memorial days, and the Jewish Sabbath as national holidays and days of rest - while guaranteeing the right of all Israeli citizens and residents to celebrate their holidays and days of rest. The law, which passed with 62 in favor, 55 against, and 2 abstentions, has sparked controversy within Israeli society.
